The Garden Told Me

Standard

*

the garden told me

it needs me

.

a poet to walk along

it to unlock

the unseen unheard

.

to feel home

while lost it needed

it told me

.

someone that will

walk it for

no reason at all

.

if not to be

it to breath along

.

The Songs Of Butterflies

Standard

*
it is a revelation
not one cicada
sounds the same

a butterfly sitting
by me admiring
something I lose

myself on such lightness
I use to tell children
to stop and to listen to

the songs of
butterflies as
they nodded back

This poem, written in 2014, is from the collection California Notebooks 01, click on the title if interested in your own copy.

Possibilities

Standard

*
tall piles of books
tall piles of paper
tall piles of drawings
tall piles of note taking
tall piles of poems scribbled

a few empty jars cleaned out
I live in my ideal city pushed
back in the corner I sit
each title a windows’
line each space

a possibility

.

Il volo

Standard

*
la vita come
scuola ci prepara
ad un altro mondo
ci accoglie prima
il nido poi il volo
.

Some Sundays posts are dedicated to Italian Poetry, feel free to enjoy them. On Tuesday post will be in English as usual.

Poems Come

Standard

*
when you honor
three layers of mountains

brown beige and purple
straight ahead of you

against a bright blue drape
not noticing the golf ball

poems come floating
the crystal breeze

This poem is part of the collection California Notebooks 02 written in Indian Wells, California.

Aprile 2021 – Inedita

Standard

Sundays’ are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*

siamo evanescenti

siamo temporanei

.

siamo sospensione

del fiato divino siamo

la pausa tra le parole

.

siamo il sacro steso

alla luce quotidiana

.

To The End

Standard

*
we all walk
bundled up on
winter days
but the dogs

jump for joy

the old man
will not sit by
his fire he takes
himself out

slowly stretching
his steps next
to the lines
of poplars

he will walk to
the end not
a thought
of surrender
